DrukenReaps on is casual Kess a thing?

I've not actually seen a Kess deck in the wild so I can't say what the power level of any of my suggestions will be but they are certainly not cEDH level.

First idea that always kinda interested me is Kess Tokens. It'll use Goblinslide, Release the Gremlins, Metallurgic Summonings, Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer, and more found here

Second idea is removal "tribal". Just every removal spell you can possibly include. One win-con might be Rise of the Dark Realms.

There seem like quite a few options if you take a look at the themes section on EDHrec. Her page.

Oh, it's also worth noting that Release the Gremlins and By Force are interesting cards that might be good for the sideboard, in case you're looking for the flexibility to destroy artifacts. Disenchant might also be good for that. (thinking of the flexibility of Bedevil without the double black in the casting cost)

Unlicensed Disintegration might also be a good addition, given that you have artifacts in this deck!

(saw your post on tumblr and had to come and suggest stuff, but feel free to ignore, I'm just trying to throw some ideas out to help out!)

I think counterspells aren't very good as signature spells (but I don't have much experience with Oathbreaker). If you're going for flavor I think Expansion / Explosion , Izzet Charm or Turn//Burn could work. (It could also be fun to build a Harnessed Lightning energy-themed deck for Ral, Storm Conduit :x)

I think that instead of running a lot of creatures with tap (or untap) abilities it would be easier to focus on artifacts for the ramp/card draw/etc with cards like Clock of Omens , Key to the City , Staff of Nin (), Unwinding Clock , Chaos Wand , Oracle's Vault () and a bunch of mana rocks ( Mind Stone , Pyramid of the Pantheon (), Coalition Relic (), Talisman of Creativity , Star Compass , Hedron Archive , Basalt Monolith and Khalni Gem ). Animation Module can add counters to planeswalkers, so that could be fun too.

Invert / Invent and Firemind's Foresight are pretty good budget tutors. Fabricate and the Trophy Mage / Tribute Mage s could be good too.

Ensnare can be a lifesaver in certain situations. Blustersquall is something I thought I would already see in your list.

Temporal Distortion makes things take 1 extra turn to untap. Frozen AEther , Winter Orb and Mist of Stagnation are other relevant Stax pieces if you want to go that way.

Reality Shift is probably the best creature single target removal in blue.

I'd cut down on the number of X damage spells you're running and rely more on having some graveyard recursion/tutoring to make it more consistent. Mystic Retrieval would be my choice to run along with Archeomancer. Mizzix's Mastery is also pretty good, but probably better if you're focusing on spellslinging.

Vandalblast and Shenanigans (or maybe Release the Gremlins for the cuteness) are good artifact removal. Geistblast is a interesting Flashback spell that actually should be like Amonkhet's Aftermath. Insidious Will 's versatility shouldn't be underestimated.

(aaand I already suggested too much. Like I said, feel free to ignore. Can't wait to see the finished deck. I hope something from this mess helps!)

Since you've got a token theme going on here, would Release the Gremlins be a better fit than By Force ? also, Vandalize is a good artifact removal spell regardless.

I think Dragonshift will be amazing for turning all those wizards into flying 4/4 dragons and could potentially be a big game-winner.

Great deck! +1

Great concept for the deck. Really like it. Having access to Red and Blue is a huge boon outside of your usual W/G white weenies token armies. Having said that I think there are a few cards you can add (on a budget, too) to give yourself more tokens with which to punch through.

Release the Gremlins is a good wipe and gives you tokens. Red also has Devils' Playground and Revel of the Fallen God . You also need a good finisher. Craterhoof Behemoth is ideal, but End-Raze Forerunners and/or Decimator of the Provinces works equally well. Trostani Discordant is also amazing for you. As is Storm Herd . All in all, I think this is a great idea on it's way to greatness.

Decimate will be a great addition. How about Creeping Corrosion for artifacts, to go along with Vandalblast . Release the Gremlins does much of the same but you can sink the mana in and get some 2/2s for it too, but the lower cost cards will be more competitive.

Knollspine Dragon and Chancellor of the Forge weren't even on my radar, those seem fantastic. Just got a Tempt with Vengeance , so that's great! I already have a Tendershoot Dryad , so perhaps it'll take a slot till I find better alternatives. I've been gravitating towards things like War Cadence , Uphill Battle , Stoneshaker Shaman , Release the Gremlins , Overwhelming Instinct , Druids' Repository and Nacatl War-Pride .

Thanks very much mmcgeach. I appreciate it. It's going to be an experiment to see where the balance is, but I think it'll teach me a lot. If you're interested, I'll share the decklist with you when it's up.
